An augmented reality orchestra plays the famous “Mission: Impossible” theme by Lalo Schifrin. With your smartphone as a magic magnifying glass, you can get very close to the instruments. Experience the orchestra as a whole or listen to the individual instruments, just as you like. My “Mission: Impossible OrchestrAR” app allows you to experience music in a new way.

This experience is a spin-off from the sax@play project of the Landesbühnen Sachsen, for which I designed this orchestral experience as a scene within an augmented reality theatre game in public space based on Kafka’s “The Castle” in 2021. This game was created by Expanding Focus and Play On, to whom I extend my sincere thanks for allowing me to transfer this scene into an independent app.

For this experience, I supplemented the recording of the orchestra of the Landesbühnen Sachsen with digital instrument samples to get a higher separation of the instruments. The 3D binauralization was done with the DearVR Spatializer. Manuel Schumach helped me with the realisation of the app.
